Congresswomen Jackson Lee’s Vietnam Ignorance

Posted by Steve Markowitz on July 16, 2010

Congresswomen Sheila Jackson Lee offered blatant proof of the ignorance that has enveloped the professional politicians that are supposed to represent the people.  First, Ms. Lee’s credentials.

Congresswoman Lee, a Democrat, is serving her seventh term in the United States House of Representatives.  She represents the 18th Congressional District of Texas in the Houston area.  According to Ms. Lee’s website, she earned a B.A. in Political Science from Yale University with honors, followed by a J.D. from the University of Virginia Law School.  As indicated in the video below, her credentials do not match her ignorance of the world and relatively modern history.

Ms. Lee sits on the following Committees in Congress:

  • The Committee on the Judiciary; Including Subcommittee on Immigration, Citizenship, Refugees, Border Security, and International Law and Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, and Homeland Security
  • The Committee on Homeland Security; Including the Subcommittee on Transportation Security and Infrastructure Protection and the Subcommittee on Border, Maritime, and Global Counter Terrorism.
  • The Committee on Foreign Affairs; Including the Subcommittee on Africa and Global Health and the Subcommittee on the Middle East and South Asia.

In a recently video-taped speech, Ms. Lee incredibly announced that Viet Nam was still divided into the North and South and that the United States was victorious in that War.  How could anyone serving on Congress, let only sitting on the Subcommittee on the Middle East and South Asia under the Foreign Affairs Committee, be so ignorant of these important facts and this important part of history?  Incredible!

Don’t expect to see this important story on network news.  These in-the-tank media outlets will do anything to protect the Leftist Progressives now running this Country.  That is the most tragic story here.
